Oral Surgery

Oral surgery is a branch of dentistry that ranges from tooth extractions to gum and bone grafts, implants and other dental procedures that require surgical treatment. Oral surgeons or maxillofacial surgeons are the specialists in charge of performing these type of procedures and most require some type of anesthesia. Treatments that fall under oral surgery can treat cosmetic issues or provide restorative solutions to your dental needs. Oral surgery can treat issues dealing with your teeth, gums, jaws, and the tissues and structures in and around your mouth.

Tooth extractions are one of the most common procedures in oral surgery. We know there is no replacement as good as your natural teeth, but when there is no other solution, an extraction might be necessary. Accidents or traumas to your mouth and teeth can happen, and while crowns or other restorative treatments can help, severely cracked or fractured teeth have to be extracted. A tooth or teeth can also be extracted as part of your orthodontic treatment to fix the spacing and alignment of your remaining teeth. Tooth extractions are simple surgical procedures that consist of pulling the tooth out of its socket, if a more complicated extraction is necessary, an incision in the gum is cut to free the tooth and remove it, suturing the gum once the tooth has been extracted. The procedure is relatively fast and painless and can be done in one short visit.

Local anesthesia is used during these type of oral surgery procedures. An anesthetic gel will numb the area being treated, and another anesthetic can be injected to block the pain during the procedure. The effects of the anesthetics can last a couple of hours after the procedure but you will be awake but relaxed and comfortable during the procedure.
